One. To determine how many games behind a team is from first place:
1) Subtract the number of wins the team not in first place has from the number of wins the first place team has.
2) Subtract the number of losses the first place team has from the number of losses the team not in first place has.
3) Add the numbers you get from 1) and 2) and divide by 2.
For Example:
Team A has 61 wins and 35 losses
Team B has 58 wins and 36 losses
Using the explanation above you would do the following equasion:
1) 61 - 58 = 3
2) 36 - 35 = 1
3) (3 + 1) / 2 = 2 .........Team B is 2 games behind Team A
If Team A loses and Team B wins:
Team A has 61 wins and 36 losses
Team B has 59 wins and 36 losses
1) 61 - 59 = 2
2) 36 - 36 = 0
3) (2 + 0) / 2 = 1 ..........Team B is 1 game behind Team B
